CS 618Q

High-end turntable with automatic lift and stop function

Dual direct drive concepts have been synonymous with outstanding durability and quality for decades. The CS 618 impresses with a quiet direct drive that keeps the platter speed precise and silent.

The turntable's twin gimbal precision tonearm is further optimised by the Ortofon 2M Blue to deliver outstanding sound quality. Discover an even more precise and improved audio reproduction for a first-class listening experience.

With an electronic motor stop and automatic lift at the end of the record, the CS 618Q offers the highest level of operating comfort for a manual turntable. In addition, there are the other comfort elements of the CS series. The stepless antiskating can be easily adjusted using a rotary knob with a clear scale. The electronic adjustment of the three speeds is conveniently carried out via a rotary switch, while the appropriate pickup can be easily changed using the headshell.
